BRING A TOY AND RUN FOR FREE. Celebrate the season of giving as we collect new, unwrapped toys for USMC Reserve's Toys for Tots. 

The RRRC Toy Run 5K, sponsored by Primrose Schools of Richmond, is proud to once again be the fall Celebratory 5K for Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond. Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. GOTR teaches life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime of appreciation of health and fitness.

Select "GOTR Toy Run 5K" when registering GOTR girls for the Toy Run 5K.
